bridal shower wine basket

My sister's best friend got married last month and as a bridal show gift she decided to do a Wine Basket with wines for big events in a newlyweds life! I thought it was a great idea and thought I'd share it with you!

Here are the poems:

First New Years
Wine- Sequin

A time to celebrate the start of the year
So we have some wine for you right here
Toast your future, your present and the past
Your love is something that is meant to last!

First Anniversary
Wine – Francis Coppola Diamond Collection Pinot Noir 

Been married a year, where did the time go?
No longer newlyweds, now you are pros
Hope the days found you in good health and spirit
Keep saying I love you- one always needs to hear it!
Now toast this first date, it’s certainly not the last
And as you build your future don’t ever forget the past!

First Thanksgiving
Wine- Butternut

Here’s a perfect addition to your 1st turkey dinner
Stuffing, pie… and a wine that’s a winner
At your own home or with family or a friend
Uncork this bottle and share until the end!

First Christmas Eve
Wine- Belle Notte (means beautiful night)

The tree, lights, decorations and more
Family, friends and gifts galore
Awaiting Santa’s arrival from the chimney above
A holiday filled with laughter and love!
So open this bottle and enjoy the night.
It’s a Christmas Eve gift that will surely delight!

First House
Wine- Casa

Buying a home together is certainly new.
It will take money and work that much is true!
When the closing is done, this bottle is to share.
But drink it down fast or those boxes will still be there!

First Baby
Wine  Fre (Alcohol free wine)

The news that a baby will soon share your life
will make you a mother not only a wife.
You’ll see it through good times and sometimes bad.
Elise the loving mother and Matt the dearest dad.
And though she’ll toast with wine that’s alcohol free
In 9 months you’ll become a family of three!

First Beach Trip
Wine- The Beach House

The sun setting over the sea
Is certainly no place for a cup of tea
Tan under the sun with a glass of this wine
Walk on the beach and forget the time.

First Fight
Wine - Clean Slate Riesling 

 You’re angry and mad and tempers flare
You need it to end right then and there
Open this bottle and make amends
And see how quickly the argument ends
Toast each other and make up with a kiss
The very best way to settle all this!

  1. Oh wow. The wine basket itself was really a thoughtful gesture, but matching it with events in a newlywed's life is really a nice touch. And in poems, no less! I hope she doesn't mind if I copy the idea. I promise to use different poems for it. Thanks for the great read!
